A MAN has been bitten while swimming on the New South Wales south coast in what may have been a shark attack.
The man's bloody hand was treated by lifeguards at Surf Beach, near Batemans Bay, after he emerged from the water about 4.30pm (AEDT) today.
A spokesman from Surf Life Saving NSW said it may have been a shark but the man did not see what attacked him and no sharks were sighted in the area.
"A gentleman came out of the water towards the lifeguard with his hand all bleeding,'' the spokesman said.
"The lifeguard noticed there were some distinctive marks and some scrape marks where he's pulled away.''
The man was treated at the scene and went home on his own.
